Many people are familiar with Dr. Pearse Lyons, the founder and president of Alltech, and his wife Deirdre. They are well known for their company’s success, and their involvement in our community and the world. This weekend, I want you to meet another Lyons.
Their son, Mark, is Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Alltech in China. Mark lives in Beijing where he’s working to expand Alltech’s presence in that country’s rapidly growing agricultural and nutritional markets. He has undergraduate degrees in political science and environmental science from the University of Chicago, and a masters and doctorate from Heriot-Watt University in Scotland.
Mark is my guest this week on One to One. We talked at the Alltech Symposium last May. That’s an annual event where hundreds of international guests, scientists, and journalists descend on central Kentucky for several days to learn about Alltech’s global activities.
Before you watch our conversation on One to One this Sunday at 1 p.m. on KET, you can see a brief overview of Alltech’s China operation in this video produced by the company.
